Deviating from the brief for one day more…

So, another court date today, and nothing much got done.  I get that from our attorney, since she has been on the case only a matter of weeks, but what’s up with the Prosecution?  The Prosecution hasn’t even READ the CHARGES!!  Which begs a number of questions in my mind.

First question, how could our previous attorneys say that the Prosecution was willing to plea bargain it down to pleading guilty on one charge and they’d drop the others, if they haven’t even read them?  How do they know if there is even one that ought to stand, or on the other hand, how do they know there aren’t 47 heinous charges?!?  THEY HAVEN’T EVEN READ THEM, HOW CAN THEY BE READY TO BARGAIN?  This shows, at least in my understanding, that they are used to how the system works, and they know that there are many many charges levied in order to hopefully have one stick (dishonest) and they don’t really want to find justice, they just want to collect as much tax-payer money as possible for as little work as possible.  If they don’t even need to know what the charges are, and they’re willing to make a deal, I smell a rat.

Second question, how much crime (or should I say “crime”) do we have in this fairly small and quiet town when the Prosecution can’t even be bothered to know what “horrible criminals” he is facing that day in court by brushing up on their information, information that he ought to have read close to the arrest of the person, in order to decide whether the case even warranted the court’s time?! Perhaps we should lay off the arrest of people who don’t use an indicator to change lanes (legitimately one of the charges against one man in court today…) and stick to real crimes, with real criminals, you know, like Corpus Delicti and all that…

Last question (for this post at least) is what exactly does the Constitution mean when it says in Amendment 6: “…the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial…”?  I mean, EIGHT MONTHS LATER and the Prosecution hasn’t even read the charges!  That doesn’t seem speedy to me.  And as far as public, I’m pretty sure the Founding Fathers didn’t mean the public smear campaign that has happened in the newspaper, so that stipulation hasn’t exactly been met either.

Seems like the oaths to the Constitution that these people have taken didn’t quite make an impression.

A Witch!

I feel the need for a little comic relief today, so we’ll veer away from the brief for a moment…

Peasants and Sherlock: We have found a witch! (A witch! a witch!)
Burn her burn her!
Sherlock: We have found a witch, may we burn her?
Judge: How do you known she is a witch?
Peasants: The newspaper said so!
J: Bring her forward
Woman: I'm not a witch! I'm not a witch!
J: ehh... but you look like one here on the front page.
W: They fabricated the evidence that is printed there!
All: naah no we didn't... no.
W: And these aren’t legitimate accusations, they’re false ones.
J: Well?
S: Well I did do the media fabrication.
J: The fabrication?
S: ...And the fear mongering, but she is a witch!
(all: yeah, burn her burn her!)
J: (with newspaper) Did you write her up like this?
S & P: No! (no no... no) Yes. (yes yeah) a bit (a bit bit a bit) But she is on the registry!
(P holds up smartphone)
J: What makes you think she is a witch?
P: Well, she was in a gymnastics gym!
J: A gym?!
(P pause & look around)
P: She wasn’t coaching children and absolutely nothing untoward happened.
P: Burn her anyway! (burn her burn her burn!)
J: There are ways of telling whether she is a witch.
P: Are there? Well then tell us! (tell us)
J: Tell me... what do you do with witches?
P: Burn'em! Burn them up! (burn burn burn)
J: What do you burn apart from witches?
P: More witches!
P: Wood!
J: So, why do witches burn?
(long pause)
P: Cuz they're made of... wood?
J: Gooood. So, how do we tell if she is made of wood?
P: Consult a wood expert!
J: Ahh, but can you trust a wood expert to be infallible?
P: Only if he is an authority figure, because they can always be trusted.
J: Is anyone here a wood expert?
S: Yes, I am
J: But didn’t you do the media fabrication?
(S shows police badge)
P: Trust him anyway!
S: You saw her in a gym?
P: I did!
S: What else can be found in a gym?
P: Bars
P: Mats
P: Beams!
S: And what are beams made of?
P: Wood!!
S: So if she was in the same place as a beam… she’s made of wood!
J: And therefore,
(pause & think)
P: A witch!
(S smiles and places his badge of infallibility back into his pants, which happen to be on fire, as he is a liar, but nobody notices in the excitement of having found a “witch”)

Ok, I hope you recognize that the idea for this scenario came from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and I hope you can recognize the similarities between the witch hunt in this scene of the movie and the absurd accusations and subsequent witch hunt brought against my mom by Sherlock.  Don’t be taken in like the peasants in this story.  This “wood expert” is presenting non-evidence in a non-crime and he expects us all to trust him because he is an “authority figure”. Uniforms and titles don’t change liars into honest men, they just give them the power to abuse the people who dare tell the truth.

Power Corrupts

More from the brief, referencing what I've already mentioned, the "creative prosecution" of Scott Wyatt:

"One could say that Scott Wyatt's 'Creative Prosecution' legacy was seriously marred on May 2,
2011, however, when Weber County District Court Judge Michael Direda ruled that Debra Brown was factually innocent. The judge vacated Brown's murder conviction and dismissed the case. On May 9, 201 1, Debra was released from prison after serving 15 years. The prosecution appealed the ruling and on July 14, 2013, the Utah Supreme Court upheld Judge Direda's finding of innocence. Under Utah law, Debra Brown was eligible for more than $500,000 in compensation for the damages she suffered. - A pretty significant price to pay for a prosecution's rush to conviction!
Lord Acton reminds us that "Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority; still more when you add the tendency of the certainty of corruption by authority," and serves as a reminder of a local vernacular which states: "We have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men as soon as they get a little authority as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion." Lord Acton cautions us with an understanding that no matter how hard we try, "The will of the people cannot make just that which is unjust.'

Lord Acton further reminds us, "Authority that does not exist for Liberty is not authority but force," and he reassures us that, "The great novelty of the American Constitution was that it imposed checks on the representatives of the people." To be clear, Lord Action says, "By Liberty, I mean the assurance that every man shall be protected in doing what he believes is his duty against the influence of authority and majorities, custom and opinion," yet he warns us about the dangers of the class warfare attributed to the appalling judicial situation here in Cache Valley. "The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern. Every class is unfit to govern.'"

How protected do you feel by such a "creative" law enforcement group as we have here in the valley?  Thanks, you can keep your protection to yourself--when it is so very "creative" that true laws, founding laws, laws that actually do protect and vouchsafe liberty are made blank paper by construction.

Prosecutor Misconduct

Back to the brief:
“Types of Prosecutor Misconduct can assume many forms, including:
  Charging a suspect with more offenses than is warranted
  Withholding or delaying the release of exculpatory evidence
  Deliberately mishandling, mistreating, or destroying evidence
  Allowing witnesses they know or should know are not truthful to testify
  Pressuring defense witnesses not to testify
  Relying on fraudulent forensic experts
  During plea negotiations, overstating the strength of the evidence
  Making statements to the media that are designed to arouse public indignation
  Making improper or misleading statements to the jury
  Failing to report prosecutor misconduct when it is discovered
The public is awakening to the existence of the problem, as well. According to a 2013 national survey:
  42.8% of respondents say prosecutor misconduct is widespread
  71.8% believe new laws are needed to curb prosecutor misconduct
Houston Criminal Lawyer John Floyd and Paralegal Billy Sinclair have maintained a continuing interest in Brady violations and prosecutorial misconduct and have compiled a comprehensive list of federal and other cases dealing with these issues that are important to the Court. These two individuals remind their profession that, "It is important to occasionally review these cases to remember the egregious depths to which some rogue prosecutors will stoop to "convict at any cost. This is not our soap box, it is a reality. Some prosecutors have forgotten, or never learned, that their primary duty is to do justice, not simply convict those unfortunate souls caught in the cross-hairs. Prosecutorial misconduct, either through deliberate Brady violations or the knowing use of perjured testimony or inflammatory arguments before a jury is designed to deprive a defendant of a fair and impartial trial, and this unethical behavior must be understood and ever guarded against. "

Anybody recognize any of this Prosecutorial misconduct from my mom’s case?  I do.  Ridiculous that these guys are not being held accountable for this misconduct.  Do you know any cases you would like me to reference here?  Feel free to comment them here and I will be glad to post them.

Plea Bargaining

Let’s get back to the Amicus Briefs that I mentioned in a very early post.  The next few posts here on my blog will be excerpts from these briefs, highlighting some of the corruption in the system here in my town:
“Unfortunately, such creative thinking (speaking of teaching cops to be creative in their “work” that was mentioned in a previous post) has resulted in far more than an increase of sexual assault prosecutions. The prosecution's use of the media, creative reporting, and other divisive tactics, while effective in advancing political careers and agendas, has added significantly to an increase of prosecutorial misconduct in the First District Court of Cache County.
The juries are finding these guys guilty? A Research Summary conducted for Bureau of Assistance U.S. Department of Justice, dated January 24, 201 1, revealed three specific findings that reflect the prosecutions in the First District Court of Cache County. l) The overwhelming majority (90 to 95 percent) of cases result in plea bargaining. 2) Prosecutorial discretion in plea bargaining is known to cause discrepancies in sentencing outcomes. 3) Those who go to trial rather than accept a plea are more likely to receive harsher sentences.
Plea bargaining is the primary instrument used in prosecuting cases in the First District Court of Cache County! As such, the Court should take note of the cautionary summary included in the Missouri Law Review Vol. 64 Iss. 2 119991 Art. 2 which states, "We've created a system that appears to work only because defendants accused of [sexual abuse] typically don't fully appreciate the risk of the reluctant complainant because they are represented by either inexperienced attorneys, attorneys who are not very good and therefore are desperate for work, or over worked public defenders. That doesn't sound like much of a criminal "justice " system to me. If the defense attorneys fully appreciate the risk of the reluctant complainant, few would plea bargain [sex abuse] cases, especially single complainant [sexual abuse] cases. But who 's the real loser then? ... Now I worry about [abuse] victims who will come forward, typically as a lone complainant, who will be forced to undergo the trauma of having to testify in court, of having to relive their experience and be subjected to cross-examination, only to have the defendant acquitted - all because the criminal justice system, as currently structured, penalizes defendants who plea bargain [such] cases. Have we created a new class of "silent victims, victims of a criminal justice system that in its righteous rush to convict [molesters/ fails to consider the long term chilling effect its rules have upon a defendant's incentive to plea bargain? Maybe the criminal justice system isn't the right place to deal with the problem... '

A Statement to the Court

As you know, if you have been following this blog and the fundraiser attached, we have been trying to replace a couple of attorneys who claimed in the beginning that they were fighters, but turned out to be pansies who only wanted to fight with my mom, while they chatted and met with and dined and held hands with the Prosecution.  Continuing to take money, they did no work that we can see, and proceeded to take thousands of dollars.  As of Tuesday morning, we have secured another attorney who seems like one who is willing to fight and not lie and go behind the scenes to make silly deals.
Tuesday was supposed to be a hearing, but when we arrived at the court. my mom's name was not on the docket.  Turns out the Prosecution knew that we were struggling to find a decent attorney, so he proceeded to just take us off the docket.  While we were still thinking that she may have to stand in front of the judge and explain that she was without representation for the moment, she wrote the following statement.  I include it here because it shows the corruption of the system from her point of view:
“Previous attorneys have depleted my resources by $18,000 and rendered me broke.  I stand before you innocent until proven guilty.  The State cannot prove me guilty simply because I am not guilty.  The State has the visibility and power to mock, media gossip, prevaricate, imagine, twist, threaten, cut deals, dramatically bite their proverbial knuckles, chide and make afraid, but they cannot prove.  So far over 60 people have donated money to help me hire an attorney who has a spark of belief that there is enough integrity in this system that they don't have to make a back room deal for someone who is not guilty.  I have $6,000 on my way to that end and I am diligently and anxiously working to engage said attorney using the other assets I have left and joyfully accepting donations from others willing to help me.

I have been put in this precarious position by one singular, lonely, prideful, tiny, small, paranoid, prevaricative, quixotic, imaginative cop, working outside of his jurisdiction, creating panic from thin air, making unsubstantiated accusations in order to procure a baseless warrant in opposition to facts of record from Utah AP&P, Cache County Sheriff, Logan City Records and the SO Registry.  He asked for, and was granted, a full 2 additional months to go about gathering evidence and accusations against me, 4 months AFTER having orchestrated my arrest and media execration and his assault on my children and grandchildren's business, when his evidence should have been absolutely tight before a judge was even asked to grant that warrant.  It seems he has more time than crime on his hands.

I won't need as long as 2 months to engage an attorney.  I apologize for the inconvenience to the court.  Please know that I, and my family, understand inconvenience."

Seems like he has more time than crime on his hands.  I would laugh if it weren't so painfully true.  When a cop has to lie in order to secure a warrant, then can use the media to help him make someone look like a villain, then use his badge to bully or coerce people into "helping" his case, putting things off for months and months while he finds nothing after nothing-- and the system allows him to do this, and continues to support him, we have a problem.

The AG

My brother attended a meeting here in town a few nights ago, where he met and spoke to the Attorney General.  It seemed to be a great meeting.  He was able to have some questions answered and also to receive the word of the AG that he will work to correct the corruption in the system.  Just because it is easier to go back on your word when not many people know about it, I'm gonna go ahead and include here in my blog, parts of the letter written to the AG by my brother so that it's out there in the open. (Of course, names have been withheld)

"Mr. Attorney General, 

It was a pleasure to meet you Wednesday at the historic courthouse Council Chambers, and to hear your verbal commitment to root out corruption in my/our local justice system. I wish it didn't exist, but unfortunately there are some serious issues going on...

I'm honestly not sure where to start. I don't want to overwhelm you with documentation, but I want you to know that we have done our research, and are prepared to do our part in rooting out this corruption.

I will be as succinct as possible, while giving you enough of an overview to understand the seriousness of the situation.

The first and grossest instance of corruption I'm fighting for is a similar situation to the famous Utah (name withheld) fiasco, with some distinguishing features...

In summary, this middle aged woman pled (under threat from original attorney) to 2 felonies in 2002, and served 5 years in prison. (If she were guilty of these they would have occurred 22 years ago.)
Factually, proven by doctors she was mentally ill (suffered from Dissociative Identity Disorder), and proven by polygraphs she was guilty of misdemeanors only (if Ex Post Facto weren't violated she would have actually not been guilty of any crimes).
Recently, 13 years since the wrongful conviction, with zero evidence of any illegal behavior, she was arrested and is currently being charged with 6 supposed violations of the law. (the charges are beyond pathetic - you will laugh when you read them...)
Factually, she was fully compliant to all official government requirements, and has been so ever since her original incarceration.

This case is very close to my heart - this is about my mom.

Once we resolve issues in her case, we intend to assist others who have experienced similar wrongful and devastating action by our justice system.

Here is a list of the documented violations of My mom's rights: (Please advise me which documentation you'd like me to send to you)

Prosecutorial Misconduct
Lying & threatening Attorneys
Lying & threatening Detective
Destruction of livelihood
4th Amendment violations
5th Amendment violations
6th Amendment violations
7th Amendment violations
8th Amendment violations
14th Amendment violations
Arrest upon accusation but no evidence of factual illegal action (i.e. arrested in June, but in October the arresting officer asked for and was granted an additional 2 months to gather evidence and witnesses...)
Charges made with no factual evidence of illegal action
Failure to read Miranda Rights upon arrest
Private property seized unlawfully
Re-introduction of the accusations in the original case (does this mean she can defend against these now? Is it double jeopardy? She did not plead guilty to the things that are being provided by the officer as evidence that she is "dangerous", neither was there a trial on them.)

We have finally found a decent attorney who is working with her on this, but given your responsibility and Oath of Office I know you also have a vested interest to correct the aforementioned violations.

Thank you again for your genuine listening to me Wednesday, and for your genuine efforts to protect each citizen of our great State."

Let's all keep an eye on our AG and see if he sticks to his Oath of Office and his word to my brother.  I hope that he will!  He seems like a man with integrity.

We have secured a lawyer who is willing to take a down payment, so we're on the road!  She believes in the justice system enough to actually use it rather than try to make a back room deal and tell my mom to plead.  Please visit this link and help us.  Thank you for your generosity!

Should A Cop Be Allowed to Lie?

We've touched briefly on this topic in an earlier post, but should a cop be allowed to lie?  Should it be accepted practice that cops will lie in order to get warrants, that they will lie if they mess up in order to cover their mistakes, that they will lie if they feel like their agenda is more important than the truth or the "offender's" rights?  I think not.

Frederic Bastiat, author of The Law (amazing little book, highly recommended!) reaffirms that: "The law is the organization of the natural right of lawful defense. It is the substitution of a common force for individual forces. And this common force is to do only what the individual forces have a natural and lawful right to do: to protect persons, liberties, and properties; to maintain the right of each, and to cause justice to reign over us all."

This basically means that if I don't have a right to do something, then I can't give that right to my representatives (cops or senators or any other collective force) and they don't lawfully have it.  So, if I am not allowed to lie to further my own agenda because it is wrong to do so, then it is wrong when cops do it.  They are only lawfully allowed to exercise the rights that I can exercise in the protection of my life, liberty, or property--and lying in order to get what I want from someone isn't on that list.

In my mom's case, Sherlock lied in order to secure a warrant, he lied to people he tried to get information from, he lied about the charges, (in fact, there is a 17 page document outlining the times he has lied, and those are only the ones we know about!) and in the original case 14 years ago he lies so many times that there is not enough room in this blog to tell you about them.

So, lies after lies after lies, and does Sherlock get written up?  Does he get fired?  Does he get a red flag on his ability to arrest people?  NOPE  He continues to have the power to calumniate people in order to gain power and prestige and to feel like a big important detective.

Really, how much power should one person, who happens to be the original arresting officer have?  When all the government organizations that my mom has to deal with on a regular basis because of the ridiculous ex-offender registry say she is completely compliant--yet the false accusation of one man (who is a documented liar) could send her back to prison against the word of all these other credible sources?  Seems like he has definitely stepped out of his lawful boundaries.

Oh, but wait, my mom's arrest is "for the good and protection of the community"--at least that is the justification that Sherlock is hiding his personal vendetta under.  Well,  "The welfare of humanity is always the alibi of tyrants."--Albert Camus

Speaking of power yesterday reminded me of Orwell’s 1984.  Like Atlas Shrugged, it is a must read book, but if you haven’t read it yet, you may not even be struck since our society is so much like it that it doesn’t even seem wrong…

"Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know what no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me."
The object of these attorneys and cops is power (and money and prestige etc) and they will do whatever it takes to get and keep as much as they can."

The attorneys have told us that the prosecutor has a calendar to fill and he doesn't care what he fills it with. That my mom is an "easy case" because they can point the finger of scorn at a "Sex-offender" instead of an "Ex-offender". That no matter the reminder that she stands there innocent until proven guilty, the label does its task. They also have said that the people don't care how much money the courts spend because they don't pay attention AND the courts know their supply of money is endless as they can just extort more from the people whenever they wish (as long as they look busy?). 

Seems like it’s time for a little house cleaning in the “justice” system, unless you like your hard earned tax dollars going to fund the shenanigans of Sherlock and his friends.

Not Alone

Here are some excerpts from a couple other people who have written to us about their experiences with the local “justice” system (their names have obviously not been shared):

“This is really important. I have watched cache county abuse "legally" who they choose, while endorsing and supporting others, unprosecuted. The attorney you use makes a world of difference. It is the difference between prison, at times. I have witnessed this. Tell your mother to trust God and pray for
a sense of peace as she endures this trial. The state of Utah has been sued for showing favor to the party with the most money for attorney fees in the family courts. Do not give up.”

“I know how corrupt the justice system in this state and especially in this valley is. It’s all about money and it’s just a big business. The police here are always looking for reasons to get people in the system. it doesn't matter if the people are ultimately innocent or not, they don't care, they just want as many people in the system as they can get. It’s their business and it circulates money… My friend's dad is a defense attorney in Logan and he tells us stories all the time of police here falsifying police reports, lying, and stacking charges which is against the constitution. The cache county prosecutor (name withheld) just got indicted on federal charges of luring witnesses, embellishing testimonies, and witness tampering. He was taking key witnesses in Logan cases out to lunch and paying them off to say certain things that would guarantee the prosecutions win. Overall, I don't ever judge anyone even when people are found guilty because we all make mistakes and that's what were here on earth to do is to make mistakes and learn. I believe even murders can be forgiven there is a reason everyone does anything and it doesn't matter the reason it matters that we all learn from we did….”

So, it’s not just my own “conspiracy theory” viewpoint that something stinks to high heaven here.  As I said yesterday, take a look at your own “justice” system… Why do we give these bullies this power?

I’m sure that there are so many cases that I couldn’t even begin to find them all, let alone list them all, but I will here give a few cases that show how the “justice” system works here in my little town.

When my mom was first arrested, she was suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder (multiple personalities) and she made the mistake that she served 5 years in prison for while mentally ill.  Due to threats from her attorney at the time, she pled guilty to trumped up charges because she was promised that the result of that would be better for her than taking it to trial.  Guess it totally depends whose courtroom you are in, and whether it’s your attorney’s turn to win, because consider the other cases that were contemporary to hers:

-A man beat his 2 year old son TO DEATH and got 15 months in jail
-A man had oral sex multiple times with a 12-13 year old girl and got less than a year in the county jail
-A man raped a 13 year old girl approximately 10 times (by hospital verification) and got one year in the county jail, and even got work release
-My mom, in a mentally ill state, committed a misdemeanor of sexual abuse of a minor, but pled to two felonies on the advice of her shoddy attorney, and served five years in prison? 

Tell me where the justice is in that?  Tell me that there aren’t multiple problems in the fact that the attorney who handled the first three cases used to be partners in a law firm with the judge who sat for those cases.  Tell me that it isn’t about the money, the prestige, the springboard to the legislature, the chance to have your name splashed across the front page as the “hero” attorney or judge or cop who saved the community by putting a mentally ill woman in prison.

Tell me those things.  I will laugh at your naivety.

Wouldn’t hurt anyone to take a look at your own “justice” system and see how just it really is.  Wouldn’t hurt anything except your paradigm, and perhaps now is a good time for a paradigm shift.

Since we had a little Scripture yesterday, I might as well follow it up today with one more scriptural discussion.

God thought it was so important that we have our agency (the freedom to choose and take the consequences of our actions) that he lost a third part of his children in the war in heaven.  Lucifer wanted to make sure that none of us sinned and then we all could go back to heaven, but Lucifer is evil.  The evil one is the one who wants to make sure that none of us sin, and the righteous one is the one who wants us to have agency.

So, if a person here on earth (Sherlock) feels that it is his job to make sure that someone doesn’t sin (re-offend) and so he punishes them before they can (if that was even their intention, which in this case, nearly twenty years of not offending proves that it is definitely not the intention) then is he placing himself in a station equal to Lucifer?  Sure seems like it.  Seems like he is placing himself firmly in the camp of the one who wanted to take God’s glory.

Somewhat megalomaniacal, no?  About par for the grown up bullies who we allow to run rough-shod over us in our lives.

The Greater Sin

Because I am a Mormon, and I live in a Mormon community, I feel today that a little Scripture is in order:

D&C 64:9 Wherefore, I say unto you, that ye ought to forgive one another; for he that forgiveth not his brother his trespasses standeth condemned before the Lord; for there remaineth in him the greater sin. 

So we are supposed to forgive EVERYONE? I don’t know if the Lord knew what he was talking about here, because when he was on earth, there weren’t ex-offenders, right?

Oh wait, he is omnipotent… So I guess we need to allow people to repent and move on with life, even if they are viewed as horrible people!  Even if there is a list of them that circulates out on the internet, causing them daily worry and trial! (and people think this list is a great idea even though the recidivism rate of ex-offenders is so incredibly low!)  Even if Sherlock is so SURE that they will re-offend that he lies and coerces nonsense statements from “concerned” parents of students in a gym where an ex-offender fills the vending and sews the mats!  I see. And if we don’t forgive them, then we have the greater sin.  I understand now, Christ really meant what he said.  Interesting.
(Now, because some of you will likely be thinking “but without this list, how will we and our children be safe?!?”  Let me acquaint you with a little concept called responsibility.  It is your responsibility to actually KNOW the people around you, and the people your children spend time with, in order to make sure that they are not harmful.  This knowing doesn’t come from the rumor mill, but from actually speaking with them or people who know them.  So yeah, be responsible for yourselves so the nanny government can get its nose out of our business.)

Cui Bono?

It’s a well-understood fact that in any situation, the people who perpetuate the situation are gaining some sort of benefit from it, or they wouldn’t continue to perpetuate it.  In other words, if you are looking for the reason that something is happening, look for the person who benefits—Cui bono?  Who benefits?

As I have already shown, the people who benefit from situations like this nonsense brought on my mom by Sherlock are the people involved in the “justice” system.  From Federal grants to prestige to whatever other circle-jerking perks they receive, it is not with a selfless desire to make the world a better place that these guys run the system.  

As stated in Ayn Rand’s life-changing Atlas Shrugged:
"Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against - then you'll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We're after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you'd better get wise to it. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted - and you create a nation of law-breakers - and then you cash in on guilt. Now, that's the system, Mr. Rearden, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."

So, if we want to be life-long bullies and continue to receive money for hurting people, all we have to do is make the kind of laws Ayn talks about above—ambiguous, not objectively interpreted, can’t be observed laws.  Sound familiar? (volunteering, an “alias” on a website unknown to the offender, internet identifiers...)

Atlas Shrugged was supposed to be a warning, not an instruction manual.

Or Maybe—Let’s have More Registries!

So, in case you are of the ilk that believes the sex-offender registry is a good thing (in which case, you obviously haven’t done your homework) why not have registries for everything?!  Then the nanny government can just take care of all of our thinking for us and we don’t have to ever KNOW anyone in order to judge them, we simply look at what registry they are on.  GREAT IDEA! (Sense the sarcasm here, people!)

My Surely not Comprehensive List of Registries that should be Implemented:
Murderer registry
Robber registry
Drug user registry
Liar registry (must provide three witnesses for every statement they ever make)
Thief registry (some countries cut your hand off-a registry would be simply "procedural")
Embezzler registry (this will go a long ways to be sure they never get hired again… It is unfortunate that they would not have the opportunity to ever have a job again but that just comes as a consequence from their decision to embezzle)
Animal killer registry
Texted while driving registry (their phone bills should be doubled, they should renew their driver license every year, every six months they should check in to see if their phone time matches their driving log)
Drowsy driver registry
Lust registry
Speeding registry
Divorced registry
Hypocrite registry/Tattletale registry/Gossip registry/False witness bearer registry/"confessing other people's sins instead of my own" registry (We've got to be sure we cover all the bases on that one)
Cheated my employer registry
Bad temper registry (high potential abuse risk here, mandatory anger management class – or if they have ever been to an anger management class they go on automatically, just because they haven't hurt somebody doesn't mean they aren't going to. If they've shown signs of having a bad temper they’ve got to be on the registry for abuse issues because there is a high probability that they potentially are the type that would hurt somebody possibly)
Mean person registry (just in case we missed anybody in the bad temper registry-this could include anybody who makes a bigoted comment, a joke in poor taste, etc.)
Betrayer registry
Suicidal thoughts registry (this registry should for sure be lifetime registry requirement-it should include anyone who has ever seen a counselor for any reason)
Repented persons registry
Not allowed to repent registry

Anyone on any of these registries has hurt someone else, and so deserve to be punished for the rest of their lives!  All giving them another job (chance, relationship, etc) would do is put them in a situation where they have temptation. You know, someone who has that Temptation should never be allowed to be in a situation where they might have to fight it or else they will surely offend again.

OK, I can’t continue any longer.  If you don’t see the ridiculous nature of such a thing as this by now, you never will.  The government shouldn’t be in the position to continue to hurt anyone who has repented and paid for their crimes. Period.

So Now We’re Allowed to ARREST People for things that Aren’t Illegal?!?

Sherlock continues to make phone calls and drum up attention about my mother being in ACGS on occasion.  He acts worried and in a fret and expresses concern about her “being helped to not re-offend” and about “addressing community concern.”    

LCPD records, acquired through GRAMA, indicate that ACGS is not a protected area. Therefore, it is not illegal to be in ACGS.  Why is this being made an issue?  This officer, the Sherlock Holmes of Northern Utah (hence his little pet name here on my blog), has petitioned (coerced, begged, threatened?) a few letters from “concerned” people who say that they’ve seen my mom in the gym, and he is using them as “evidence” in his case and as justification for arrest and 6 charges (many of which we have covered here, all of which we will cover here, and we will show that they are absolutely ridiculous).  How can something be evidence when the thing that it “proves” is not illegal?!?  That baffles me.  If an action is not illegal, it doesn’t matter how many people don’t like it, the police cannot justifiably arrest someone for that action. 

Even if the concern is because a person is an ex-offender, community concern does not condone police abuse.  Community concern does not justify the taking of money and resources.  Community concern does not justify harming a woman and her family, and threatening to continue to do so unless the woman and her family bend their backs and “yes massa” just like the people who were considered less-than-human in years past.

A Little Super Bowl Comparison

So, the Super Bowl happened yesterday (as everyone, even a non-football-watcher like myself has to know unless you live under a rock) and I'm sure that there are strong opinions about the outcome. There are always strong opinions about the outcomes of sports.  Which makes me wonder, "what if people cared as much about things that really truly matter as much as they do about sports?"

Hence a Super Bowl comparison, to hopefully help people understand the way that some of us feel...

Let's pretend that there is a football referee who has been hired to work the Super Bowl, only he doesn't really care about the rules, because he feels that his opinion is superior to the rules, and he knows that "for the good of everyone" he must ignore, bend, even flagrantly break the rules in order to push his own agenda.  So he plans to do so.

He absolutely changes the trajectory of the game, throwing flags on plays that don't deserve it, allowing players that he likes to do whatever they want, and basically deciding unilaterally which of the football rules are "good" for "everyone" at any particular part of the game.  Some people are mad, but the people whose views happen to align with the corrupt ref think those people are crazy conspiracy theorists who don't understand that the ref is really right, he is not held down by the rules because he is above the rules, he gets to decide the rules on the spot because after all, he is the ref--the authority figure.

The game definitely wouldn't be fair, and people would be mad about it and complain to the NFL--fire this ref!!  What if the NFL got his back and said, "well, we disagree with what he did, but he's one of our striped brothers, so we have to get his back, really, he's only one bad apple ref, it's not a big deal, how many people can one bad ref actually hurt?"

If this happened, people all over the country would notice, people all over the country would care.  What about real life?  Cops (some of which truly do fit the Criminals On Public Salary moniker) are allowed to interpret, bend, and break laws, even flagrantly LIE in order to push their own agenda, to "make the world better for everyone" by helping their "team" win, and nobody seems to notice nor care.  These are real people whose lives are being touched, harmed, ruined, even taken by police overstepping and brutality, but it doesn't make a stink like a corrupt ref would.

Hmmm.  When are we going to hold these "authority figures" to the laws they have taken an OATH to uphold?  When are we going to say enough is enough--you are not our rulers, you are our servants!  SERVE AND PROTECT does NOT mean "choose which laws you like, which laws fit your agenda, and go ahead and break the others" and it doesn't give you the right to lie.  You should be the example of upholding the laws, not the overlords who are above the law and will hurt their "underlings".

Do you hear me, Sherlock?  And all you other bad apples?  You will get yours, whether in this life or the next, for your unrighteous dominion and your lying and your cheating and your breaking of your sacred oath.

We Don’t Need that kind of Help!

Sherlock has written to the court that his efforts in accusing and arresting my mother are to “help” her not re-offend.

In order for her to be guilty of the crimes she pled guilty to in 2002, they would have had to have been committed 22 years ago.  Please note (4) things.
          1) That would have been 1993. She wasn't coaching until 1997.  Therefore, she couldn't POSSIBLY have been a coach at the time.  So there is no logical connection to Sherlock’s fantasy that her being a coach has anything to do with anything.
          2) It would have been beyond the statute of limitations under the law to even charge her after the year 2000. (UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!)
          3) That would mean there has been NO RE-OFFENSE for 22 years, which would include the 8 years from the time of the offense(s) to the initial arrest as well as the 8 1/2 years since she was released from prison.
          4) When she was sentenced, this was expungable and not a SO Registry black hole.  Laws were changed and applied to her retroactively. (ALSO UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!)
Arresting someone to “help” them not reoffend is somewhat like killing someone when they're 30 in order that they won't have the pains of old age. You can't guarantee that they're going to have the pains of old age!  This type of pre-emptive strike against her is an astounding abuse of power.
Apparently the Police Department thinks they employ Finch and Reese from the television show Person of Interest.

Just a Few Bad Apples?

From a Facebook post by Jeremy McLellan Comedy.
“Whenever the topic of police brutality comes up, people always say “it’s just a case of a few bad apples.” But the expression is not “a few bad apples are really annoying” or “one bad apple makes the others look bad.” It’s “one bad apple SPOILS the bunch.” That’s why farmers get rid of bad apples. They don’t defend bad apples. They don’t give bad apples promotions. They don’t let bad apples take early retirement with full pensions. They throw them out to protect the good ones. If police departments want the respect of the public, they have to earn it by showing us they actually care about their product. Until then, it’s perfectly reasonable to assume the whole barrel is spoiled, and the farmer doesn’t care.”

Hey any good cops out there—If you want us to believe that not all cops are “bad apples” it’s time for you to stop covering up for your brothers in blue and start calling them on their crap.  It’s time for the decent cops in Logan City to throw the “Sherlocks” out before they do more damage to the citizens who pay your paycheck.

Perhaps you readers wouldn’t consider the arrest of an ex-offender to be brutality, but what does it look like to you when my mom, who was still suffering from the effects of a terrible motorcycle accident, gets thrown down in her own driveway in front of her grandchildren?  Good police work by people who are just trying to protect their community?  Ha! Try grown up bullies exercising the power they are allowed to keep holding because the citizens and their fellow officers allow them to continue to treat people as less than human.

Failure by Cop to Understand the term “Volunteering”

Let’s have a look at another creative claim by our illustrious star student:
Failure to report volunteering at A Certain Gymnastics School(hereafter ACGS)
It is not illegal to own businesses, and it is not required to report ownership of businesses. People have seen her at ACGS dropping off and picking up her grandchildren, as any normal grandma would do. However, she does not, nor ever has owned ACGS, nor has she received any employment payment from ACGS. She does however volunteer to repair HER OWN mats, fix and purchase equipment, etc. – which is primarily done at her home residence. The reporting of this volunteer activity, and her playing musical instruments at funerals, and other church functions, has since been rectified with her SO Registry Officer. (Petty!) Under the reasoning of the detective who gathered this damning evidence, she should also be reporting that she cleans her own house, shovels her own driveway, and washes her own car.

This one is so self-explanatory and OBVIOUSLY RIDICULOUS that I don’t feel like it needs any further comment.
